Happy Easter

Wishing all of you who believe – Happy Easter!

And for the rest, wishing you flowers in your hair,as we look forward to Spring.Or if you’re going on an Easter egg huntMay you find those last three eggs I couldn’t find.

And those Easter bunnies – hope they have a good sunny day to hop around.

May’s comment:  Easter Day of each year is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first Full Moon occurring on or after the March equinox (between the 19th-21st March).

That is because Jesus’ death and resurrection occurred around the time of the Jewish Passover, which was celebrated on the first full moon following the vernal equinox.

On this holiest of Christian holidays, a lot of people associate Easter with the Easter Bunny bringing Easter eggs – the most commercially recognised symbol of this holiday. It is thought the Easter Bunny was a German tradition brought to America by the migrants. Both the bunny and eggs are pagan symbols, but as the bunny represents “fertility and new life” while the egg also signifies “re-birth”, and the hollowness of the chocolate Easter egg is supposed to remind us of the “empty tomb” – their symbolism.  Really?

So if you prefer Easter Eggs, Easter Bunnies and celebrate the arrival of Spring – Happy Easter!

And if you celebrate the resurrection of Christ – we say, “He is risen.”Hallelujah!At St. Mary’s Church in Rye, Sussex.

    Took my pup to Easter Sunday service today at All Saints Kingston. He was so well behaved. Have also taken him to Holy Trinity Sloane Square-more in your neck of the woods. They are very dog-friendly.

      Good to know about Holy Trinity. The church across the street from us is also dog friendly but we never seem to be around! 😊
